Commercial Mold Damage Experts In Dover Spell Out The Four Steps To The Remediation Process

1/8/2020 (Permalink)

Anytime you have a slow water leak, fungi can develop. Anytime you have a slow water leak, fungi can develop.

As buildings age, it is possible that places such as your assisted living facility in Dover can develop a small water leak that can lead to worse problems over time. If any organic materials such as wooden items inside your facility get wet, you might eventually be forced to have commercial mold damage restoration conducted by a professional company such as SERVPRO. We can arrive promptly and help you mitigate your issues with fungi.

Our SERVPRO team knows that mold can cause health effects and that keeping your facility sanitary is essential. During any commercial mold damage project in Dover, we use a standard set of procedures to reduce the chances of mold spreading to previously unaffected areas during the restoration process. We conduct our work processes in ways that allow you to keep your business functioning as usual.

During every mitigation project, our SERVPRO technicians always use the same following four procedures during the remediation process.

1. Establish Containment
The first step during the remediation process is to contain the work area so that spores released during the process do not spread across your building. We can use plastic to establish containment and air scrubbers to create negative air pressure inside the contained area. The air scrubber includes a HEPA filter that traps particles like mold spores and pumps out clean air.

2. Remove Mold Contamination
Anything that contains mold must be removed so that spores coming from the fungus do not keep getting released into the air. Sometimes surface fungi can be soda blasted or sanded off. However, if items such as your facility's drywall get contaminated, then the affected items could have to be removed and replaced. Any time we take away portions of your building's drywall that got contaminated by mold, we dispose of them properly inside a sealed plastic bag.

3. Clean Dust And Settled Spores
After the contaminated materials have been removed, spores could still exist inside the dust created by work processes. To clean the soil, we can use a vacuum equipped with a HEPA filter or wipe the dust off affected surfaces.

4. Dry The Materials
Once the mold contamination and spores have been cleaned and removed, we then dry out any wet building materials so that the fungus does not form again.

Anytime you have a slow water leak, fungi can develop. To make sure your assisted living facility remains to be a healthy place to stay after a fungal problem, call SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester at (603) 743-4301 any day of the week because We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
